Mathematical Models of Uptake, Metabolism & Response Likelihood


August 12, 2010

Environmental scientists have increasingly turned to mathematical modeling techniques to provide broad information about environmental contaminant levels and to assess the potential variability in contaminant levels caused by environmental factors.

Exponent scientists and engineers provide the full spectrum of expertise needed to evaluate chemical fate and transport. For air pollutants, our knowledge and experience can characterize the processes by which the pollutants are formed and the magnitude and rate of emissions from the sources, followed by using the appropriate modeling tools and meteorological and geographical data to quantify the potential magnitude of exposure. We have evaluated pollutants released into fresh or marine waters, using our broad understanding of the hydrodynamic and sediment transport processes involved, the geochemical variables of chemical transport and transformation, and the biological and ecological factors involved in direct-contact exposure or indirect exposure through the food chain.
